Inside the TESLA Model S Battery

at 11:57 pm. Filed under Complex Hacks, Cool Gadgets

 

 
jehugarcia shows us what is Inside the TESLA Model S Battery. There are lots of bolts holding the battery pack together. Why are they ripping apart this huge battery? To make smaller battery packs to power other electric cars. As you can see from the video this pack is built like a tank. It is not meant to be services since it is all glued together. With a bit of elbow grease they can get into it though. Nice to see they are taking lots of precautions when working with the discrete modules since they hold a ton of energy and could cause some major destruction! This obviously wouldn’t be worth it to take a new battery apart but this one was taken from a crashed car where the battery survived.  If you want some of these modules for your project you can get them at EV West.

CubeAMSPro100 has completed a UNI-T UT61E Backlight Touch Mod which adds some interesting features to the UNI-T meter. With a wave of a hand over the top of the meter he can now command the backlight to turn on or off. This isn’t a simple hack and it involved installing a custom PCB to handle the magic.

Add LED Backlight to a LCD Display

at 2:49 pm. Filed under DIY Hacks

 

Kerry Wong shows us how he makes some of his older gear a bit more usable by increasing the readability of the displays by Adding LED Backlight to the LCD Display. Turns out the LCD used some low intensity 5mm LEDs that were simply mounted in a way such that the light was directed through the rear of the display.
